|In the 1980s, people feared that HIV might take over the world. Today they might have much the same worries about Swedish mega-retailer H+M. This billboard liberation from German artist XOOOOX, to coincide with Berlin Fashion Week, is pretty amazing. [via: Wooster]. XOOOOX doesn’t seem to have that much stuff up yet but I do like these rebranded benches. Font and a flourishy crest will go surprisingly far towards bougie-luxe appeal it seems.
I guess I don’t really have any beef with H + M though – and nothing could possibly as utterly frightening as the infectious spread of Walmart, as seen in the video below. I kind of love that it starts out in darkness and the country get’s slowly, then whooshily illustrated through pinpricks of whitebread consumerism.
And although the map doesn’t show it, they have now breached the Canadian and Mexican borders too. As illustrated by this photo, aptly named “A Concise History Of Modern American o“. Though sometimes colonialism gets a little messier.
